Factoid: Aaron Jones: sleeper?

As Andy pointed out in his roundup, Aaron Jones will miss the season’s first two games. He’s been suspended for violating the league’s substance abuse rules. That’s not necessarily a huge deal.

Factoid: Explosive Aaron Jones

The Packers don’t have a stand-out, can’t-miss running back, but they do have nice depth at the position. Jamaal Williams, Ty Montgomery and Aaron Jones have all shown some ability to be productive.  more »
